Calm down everyone, let the NCO explains why his soldiers didn’t rob the girls in front of his face yesterday.

By the way, this Chapter is in the NCO’s POV

Ranting: Gya… So many Refers… don’t make me search for it everything please FUNA sensei. My head hurts.


Mile Chapter 242: Ascham Viscountess 11

 

 

『However, those girls were brave…』(NCO)

 

The officer murmured while marching.

Yesterday, the【Traveling Canteen Saintess Shop】 girls brought water and food to our soldiers just when we were in need.
Certainly, the price was expensive, but considering it’s what those girls brought with their lives, I can’t complain.
They were also saying about supply and demand, too.
Even if it’s the same item, but the price will be different from when buying in our Imperial city, towns, in the village of the remote area… no one can complain.

 

And as the Kingdom’s Army might still chase us, they had brought us hope and life for our soldiers with those water and foods.
It’s exactly as the Saintess in the shop name 【Traveling Canteen Saintess Shop】
Were those girls following our army from our country?
Or were they the daughters of those who have married to the Empire?
In any case, I am thankful for their help.

(T.N: I hope this will be enough to explain what readers argue in the last chapter)

 

While the NCO marching, he thought about such things, suddenly, the front unit stopped and the road was blocked with soldiers.

 

『The Front unit, what are you doing? The back became cramped…』(NCO)

 

As the NCO ran to the front shouting, something unbelievable reflected in his sight.

The tent, the long table, the girls he has seen yesterday, and the signs is almost the same as what he has seen yesterday…

 

【Traveling Canteen Saintess 2nd Shop】

Mile Vol 8-3

 

『Are you serious……?』(NCO)

 

Ale and wine have disappeared from the sale.
Apparently, it seems that those things didn’t sell well yesterday.

 

『Hey, can I ask you a couple of things?』(NCO)

 

I ran over in front of the tent and asked the girls I met yesterday.

 

『Oh, you are the one who helped us yesterday. Yes, what is it?』(Rena)

 

The redhead girl replied so, for now, I asked what I was concerned about.

 

『Yesterday, you sold water and food to our army, right?
If possible, I would like you to sell more for the soldiers who weren’t able to buy yesterday…』(NCO)

『Oh my (Ara) you would like to buy everything?』(Rena)

 

The red girl replied with indifference answer.

Maybe she didn’t get the question, I will explain then.

 

『No, I don’t mean that.
After confirming, I’ve heard that the soldiers only got around ten percent before the stock ran out』(NCO)

 

Because yesterday, after our soldiers finished, we didn’t stay in the vicinity of the tent but moved away to be efficiently handled.

I wasn’t able to confirm things around because the soldiers went back to their groups.

 

『So, you wanted us to keep selling until all soldiers of the Imperial Army could buy food and drink?』(Rena)

『Huh……?』(NCO)

 

The amount that can be carried by 3 young girls cannot be enough.
If only 3 girls can cover the supplies of our Army.
Every military army in this world will have their supplies organized by 3 young girls like this.

No doubt.

 

『…………』(NCO)

 

There are many things I want to say and want to hear.

But right now, I decided to ask another question I would like to ask earlier.

 

『… and what is that girl?』(NCO)

 

The place I pointed to…
Apart from three girls who sell water and food on the long table,
there was another figure that seemed to be a girl.

 

I used the word 《seemed to be》 because that figure somehow looks like a child with a donkey costume carrying objects on its head.

And on the head of the donkey costume, there was a dog, a cat, a chicken,
She was singing outrageous songs while playing instruments that I have never seen before…

 

Sū sū sūku ikūtoe~i! (Mile) (T.N: Bremen’s music)

 

『Ah… something like《If you want to sell water, you have to let me sing this song!》
Otherwise, I won’t give you any…』(Rena)

 

A redheaded girl explained such, with a face that she didn’t know anything.

 

『Well, then, what about her costume?』(NCO)

 

The other girls seem to have a proper dress.
So there can’t be such thing as she has no money.

And the redhaired girl replied with a troubled face.

 

『If we sell water outdoor, we don’t have to be that way.
No, that child insists on wearing it, well, it doesn’t matter to us.
Anyway, those clothes are going to be scrapped, 《clothes to throw away》…』(Rena)

 

What!? I don’t understand the meaning at all.

 

『Well then, that creature and the dolls over her head …』(NCO)

『She said something like 《Music of Bremen》…
Don’t ask me!
Don’t ask me anything!
Because we don’t know the meaning as well…』(Rena)

 

The red hair girl refused to answer halfway and the two girls who are continuing to sell food and water were also confused.

 

Anyway, if I continue, it will only disturb the sales.
And that means a decrease in the withdrawing speed of our army.
But today the girls are able to handle people’s flow well from the beginning. There’s no need for me to help.
I should not disturb the girls anymore with my own curious question.

As the NCO thought so, he hid his doubts and curiosity in his mind instead.

 

『I’m counting on you.
We never forget this kindness!』(NCO)

 

As I said that, I lowered my head to the girls and ran back to the location of my troops.

 

『『『…………』』』(Rena’s Trio)

 

And the three girls looked at the mysterious donkey girl with strange eyes…

 

(End of NCO’s POV)

………………………………………………………

 

 

And the next day.

It appeared before the NCO who kept walking silently with his troops again.

A tent that he has seen, a long table that he has seen, the girls that he has seen, signs that he has seen with a small change, the donkey girl that he has seen…

 

【Traveling Canteen Saintess 3rd Shop】

Mile Vol 8-3

 

 

『… Yeah, I knew it.』(NCO)

 

The officer became tired, shrugged his shoulder and muttered so.

 

 

…………………………………………………………………………

 

 

『Well, we will sell things “bang bang”!
If it’s a small gold coin per customer, for 5000 customers it will be 500 gold coins!』(Pauline)

 

It was a value equivalent to almost 50 million yen as a sense of Japanese yen (500.000 bucks)

 

『This is helping people, this is service activity!』(Pauline)

『『『…………』』』(Rena’s Trio)

 

Rena’s trio didn’t believe Pauline’s words at all.

 

And yesterday, Miles who played a donkey, as usual, had been thinking about something else.

 

(This is a different world, and this tent is my temporary house which is a donkey.
A donkey with a temporary house.
… 【Roba Aru Kariie】 ? ) (Mile) (The nameless city)

 

Even though she was thinking about something like that, there was no one who could understand.

 

『Mile, why did you put both hands on the ground for?』(Rena)

(orz)

 

For Mile, that fact is, “that fact is” (repeat the words 7 times). It’s a very sad thing…

 

……………………………………………………………

 

 

Imperial troops on the way here knew full well, that the lower part of Ascham Land faces the border with the Empire,
The villages around the highway are unmanned, there is no food nor water, wells.

If there is no water or food at all, all await is just death, the soldiers who survive will one after turn into bandits and worsen the security of the Kingdom.

However, right now, they have a little free water that is created by magic.
And once a day, water and food obtained from silver coins and small gold coins.

With this, somehow the Imperial Soldiers can return home alive
Now, they don’t have to choose the way to become a bandit or can’t see their family again.
The Imperial Army was able to keep the military prowess at the last minute.

The 【Traveling Canteen Saintess Shop】 continued to sell water and food every day until the Imperial army crossed the border and entered the imperial territory.

 

『It’s helping human help service activity, it’s awesome!』(Pauline)

『…after all, it’s Pauline…』(Rena)

『It was really Pauline … ….』(Maevis)

『It was Pauline alright…』(Mile)

  1. Huh? They never got suspicious about how and where the Traveling Canteen Saintess Shop got to restock their supplies each day?
    Maybe they were delirious from hunger. That must be it.

    • simple. try to disturb them. then there are no more “saintess Shop” 2nd or 3rd branch etc
      that means. survivability chance is getting lower.

    • The “restock” is the EASIEST question to answer. The real doozy is how they circumvent the entire army they spent the entire day selling yummies… in one night. If you remember, the NCO answered the restock question. The soldiers believe the girls are related to the empire somehow, and followed the army from the empire… That easily goes to show start out with a LOT of supply at the start, and schedule planned drop sites for the restock on the way back.(For english second language people, I am NOT trying to say this is what happened. I AM stating this is what the soldiers BELIEVED happened.) The other issue is the TARDIS style tent they have. you can’t store even enough food/water to the 10% of the army that the NCO stated they serviced in a tent as small as the one in the pic.

        • Nope, it’s the first game Recettear. Chantelise was the second game and Fortune Summoner was the third. Each game was a different Genre with it’s own unique story. Recettear was a shopping game that also included procedurally generated dungeons, like Moonlighter. “Capitalism, ho!” was the main heroine, Recette’s, catchphrase.

    • I think she was socialy awkward, isolated for being too perfect and reserved, so she’s now trying to be bombastic and energetic to be more approacable, but is still using JP social standards, and also is having fun fuflilling wild fantasies that most people have be never act on, because they make no sense, so by social standards she has never really been smart, it was that she was good at academia, and sports that people said she was above average. She was given a fresh start and decided to make some changes to how she conducts herself, and was never told when she reached too much eccentricities. Or that is just my interpertation.

    • She has that mix of brainpower and willingness to do things that I like in protagonists.
      Sure, there are sages in the mountains that are super-wise and never do anything wrong. Actually, they don’t do anything, and don’t make good protagonists.
      Sure, there is a lot of brainless louts that somehow succeed with stupidity and bravery. I don’t like that type of protagonists and the anti-intellectualist propaganda that stars them.

      A good protagonist has a mix of both smarts and a willingness to act. Some sense of humor would not hurt too – gotta keep up with the pressure and failures. Failures are inevitable for a realistic intellect just as a fighter can’t really expect to win all battles.
